Herbal Remedies for Pets: Bite Wounds





When animals fight and bite, they can get puncture wounds, most often around the face, neck and chest. Punctures may not look serious, but the damage done by a cat’s narrow teeth or a dog’s strong bite can cause considerable soft-tissue damage beneath the victim’s skin.

When your pet has been bitten, let it calm down before assessing the damage. (If your pet appears extremely agitated or very listless, you may need to have your vet check that it hasn’t been more seriously hurt.) If the skin has been punctured, clip the hair away from the wound. Remove any loose hairs, then carefully bathe the area with warm, soapy water.

Watch for signs of infection as described under “Tender Paws.” If they appear or if the pet treats the wound gingerly itself, give it echinacea tea, tincture or capsules .
